RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - The Democratic half of North Carolina's Woodhouse political brothers will take the helm of "Correct the Record," a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC, according to the New York Times.

Brad Woodhouse formerly ran American Bridge and was a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee.

The Times reports the group was started by Clinton supporter David Brock. The re-engineered group will be able to coordinate with the Clinton campaign.

Brad's brother, Dallas, is a conservative activist in North Carolina. The brothers have become TV celebrities who appear on national cable shows. Their sparring was showcased last year on C-SPAN when their mother, Joyce,  called in to tell her sons to stop fighting.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A fundraising email from The Pat McCrory Committee is touting last week's announcement that the state has paid back the $2.5 billion debt it owed to the federal government for money borrowed to pay unemployment benefits several years ago.

Following is the text of the email.

----------------------------------------------

Friend,

The differences are all around us.

Back in 2009, while hard-working North Carolinians were making the tough choices to live within their means, Governor Perdue and her big spending allies were running our state deeply into the red. As a result, when I took office our state was saddled with $2.5 BILLION in unemployment insurance debt that was a drag on job creators.

I'm happy to announce that we have paid off this stifling debt more than 3 years earlier than planned! We are just getting started in North Carolina, but we need help from people like you to keep our momentum going.

Will you help North Carolina continue down the fiscally responsible path by contributing $10 today?

This means employers in North Carolina will save over $280 million this year – money that can be used to create jobs! This is a major weight off of our state’s back and the latest step forward in the Carolina Comeback.

Chip in $10 to the Pat McCrory Committee and let’s keep the state moving in the right direction.

For North Carolina!

Governor Pat McCrory

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A fundraising appeal from the new executive director of North Carolina's Democratic Party asks the faithful to help the party's efforts to "North Carolina forward."

Kimberly Reynolds says she's ready to get to "roll up my sleevs and get to work."

Reynolds' email announces a new deputy executive director, Doug Wilson.

The party also has a new chairwoman, Patsy Keever, who was elected to succeed Randy Voller earlier this year.

Democrats are in a rebuilding mode following several years of internal turmoil within the party apparatus and large losses at the ballot box that have put Democrats firmly in the minority following many decades of power.

State Republicans will elect a new chairperson to succeed outgoing chairman Claude Pope next month.
